Earning His Stripes
Freshman D.J. Uiagalelei was forced into action for #1 Clemson when Trevor Lawrence tested positive for COVID-19. Things did not start well for the Tigers as they trailed Boston College 28-10 late in the second quarter. Clemson managed to get a field goal before the half and took over the rest of the way, shutting out the Eagles the rest of the way, on the way to a 34-28 win. D.J. Uiagalelei passed for 342 yards with two touchdowns. Clemson will still be without Trevor Lawrence, the Heisman Trophy favorite, when they face #4 Notre Dame in South Bend next Saturday.
